Kingsmead College is founded on consideration and care for others. Service is one of the values of the school. The Kingsmead Service department was established to instill and cultivate active citizenship and to enable students to impact their community in a meaningful way.

Service is an expectation at Kingsmead College and the Service department provides opportunities for the students to connect and engage with their community through a programme of community engagement. The Service department’s slogan is Give Without Expecting Reward.

We have a Service programme that has been intentionally curated for our Students to enable them to achieve their Service requirements.


We facilitate two Service@School activities per term. These include: Make a mac n cheese for Kids Haven – hosted by our Consumer Studies department; learn to make bunnies (for the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital) and snuffle balls (for the SA Guide Dog’s Association); sort, pack and distribute donations – after each of our termly collections.


We offer various Service@Home activities including meal-in-a-bag; eco bricks; activity packs; knitted squares; stationery packs; bunnies; snuffle balls; snack packs and toiletry packs.

Service Saturdays

We are delighted to be a founding school of the inter-school volunteering initiative. Along with Roedean, De la Salle Holy Cross College, and St David’s Marist Inanda we schedule inter-school volunteering on a Saturday. The perfect way to get social, get volunteering and to make a change.

Service Directory

We have a Service Directory on our Kingsmead App offering a choice of volunteering opportunities. It has been shown that volunteering within a 20 km radius of where volunteers live / go to school are most successful. All opportunities are easily accessible to our students.

In 2024 we will be launching Service Hours - our own volunteer logging, verification, reporting app. This has been built in close consultation with the Kingsmead App developers – MyAppZone. The school has developed mutually beneficial relationships with non-profit organisations. These relationships provide the social cohesion the school wants to foster and is beneficial for the organisations as well as the students at Kingsmead.
